Since the 1960s, the Museum of Wisconsin Art’s annual Members’ Exhibit has showcased the diverse artwork of museum members aged 3 to 93.
This year’s Members Exhibit, on display through September 8 at the MOWA, 205 Veterans Ave. in West Bend, features paintings, sculptures and mixed media works by 250 members of all skill levels, from hobbyists to professional artists. The exhibit “offers an invaluable look into the creative vision of contemporary Wisconsin art,” according to the MOWA website.
Located in the museum’s State Gallery, the exhibit is divided into several media and subject categories, including sculpture, glassware and ceramics, landscapes, animals, figures and portraits, abstract art, fiber art and mixed media.
From pre-kindergartners’ charming watercolors and colorful paper collage to a folk-art-inspired painting of a Wisconsin barn wedding to clay sculptures, Impressionist-influenced waterscapes and vibrant encaustic works, the community-minded Members show offers visitors a breadth of art not often seen in other exhibits.

Ruby red, tart and floral, dried hibiscus puts a tropical twist on drinks, desserts and more - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Wisconsin patios in summer.
On top of all that, hibiscus flowers are edible. Dried and steeped, they add a splash of brilliant color and flavor to drinks, desserts and more.
Dried hibiscus flower (technically the calyx, or part of the plant that protects the bloom before it opens) has a rich culinary history and has been used medicinally for centuries. The flowers are credited with improving blood pressure and respiratory health while being rich in vitamin C. Some food manufacturers are beginning to use hibiscus as a natural food coloring in place of artificial red dyes.
Steeping the dried flowers as a tea is an easy place to start, allowing you to experience the flower’s tart, fruity flavor in the simplest way possible. Steep in boiling water using a tea steeper at a ratio of 2 tablespoons dried hibiscus for every 1 cup of water. Let steep 5 to 10 minutes and then enjoy hot or iced.
A traditional Mexican drink, agua de Jamaica or hibiscus water, uses sugar to balance the tea’s natural tartness; the refreshing tea is served over ice with the midday meal.
Hibiscus is a natural fit for sultry summer cocktails. Vodka, gin, rum and tequila all play well with hibiscus, along with ingredients like pineapple, lemon, lime, ginger and mint. An easy way to add a tropical touch to an everyday drink is to have hibiscus simple syrup at the ready. Using equal parts sugar and water, along with dried hibiscus in the ratio mentioned above, bring everything to a boil until the sugar is dissolved, then strain out the flowers and keep it in the fridge for whenever the mood strikes.
The syrup is also great for splashing into sparkling water or freshly squeezed lemonade. Desserts are another place where hibiscus shines. The flower’s flavor is mild enough that it won’t dominate a recipe, but its magenta hue will turn heads, bringing a festive, feminine touch to the end of any meal.

Door to Nature: Thimbleberry Flowers and Fruit - Door County Pulse

Many wild, white-flowered plants reach center stage during the last week of June in northeastern Wisconsin. The Canada anemone, Canada dogwood, highbush cranberry, oxeye daisy, red dogwood and thimbleberry are all decked out in their immaculate white.
The species that we will keep clearly in mind throughout July, patiently waiting for its delectable fruit to ripen, is the thimbleberry: Rubus (ROO-bus) parviflorus (par-vi-FLOR-us). Some people call the blackcap raspberry, Rubus occidentalis, the thimbleberry. Its leaflets are whitish and felty on the undersides.
Far more people know the genuine thimbleberry to be the large, juicy, red raspberry, with tiny seeds and tart flesh born on smooth canes with huge, handsome, maple-like, textured leaves. Few areas within its entire range are more famous for this favorite wild berry than Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Some years ago, a national TV weatherman held a jar of thimbleberry jam sent to him by people in the UP and said, “Nowhere else in the entire world does this marvelous berry plant grow!” It actually r... Apr 27, 2019
